Early Morning Drive By Post

If Social Security's gonna be bankrupt by 2016 (I'll be 40, maybe 41- which will be about 30 years before retirement), then I wanna know this- WHY THE SMEG AM I PAYING INTO IT?

Seriously. I've been working since 1993, and have been paying into Social Security since then as well. I don't WANT the government to take care of me in my old age- I'm planning for my own retirement; I've never quite trusted the government as it is.

Hey, SSI- I want my money back, you weasels.


The Blog Has Not Been Abandoned!

I know, I know, I'm a bad, bad blogmommy.

My only excuse is that I signed up for the Glenn Beck Insider and I spend almost all of my Internet time on the message boards over there. It's like crack, I swear. The boards alone are worth the $6.95 a month (although the audio archives have some seriously sweet goodies as well). Oh, and there's the Webcam. And the Stu (Executive Producer) Show, which is pure goodness as well.

Let's see, so much to talk about...

Well, first of all, there is the whole brouhaha over President Ahmadinejad speaking at Columbia University. Yeah, guys. Really smooth move. I may be a semi-educated Okie but I would NOT have permitted that in the least, given his views on women and homosexuals, not to mention Americans. "Diversity of viewpoint" my butt- this was an extremely poorly calculated PR move. I have no idea what you guys were trying to prove, but a lot of Americans are very, very upset. Trust me, I wish I had kids so that I could forbid them to attend Columbia.

And then of course there's Ahmadinejad himself. If he wants to start a bloody jihad on us, then why does he bother coming over here to play nice- so he can have some PR footage for Al Jazeera making it look like he tried to give us options before coming over to wreak havoc? He's not fooling anyone.

And don't even get me started on Hillary Care. I already pay enough of my rather pitiful income toward taxes- I can't afford to pay more. God help us if she wins. (That and I honestly believe she has little moral values and something up her sleeve.)

Oh, yeah, and I bet y'all want to know what's up with my personal life. Let's see... I'll never have a gay roommate again (NOTHING against gay people at all, but most are just too tidy to deal with my happy, sloppy, conservative butt). Oh, and MIN finally hacked me off to the point of no return, so I called my old temp agency, who are glad to have me back. Also, I went on an interview yesterday and have two other people who want to set up interviews this week. So, MIN can eat it. They got my 2 weeks and told me to take my stuff with me, thanks. Whatever. That 2 weeks was one of the nicest, most professionally written things ever.

That's pretty much it for now. Check ya later. (But not too much later.)


Slightly mean spirited Hillary Clinton joke

Senator Hilary Clinton was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation two weeks ago in upper New York state. She spoke for almost an hour on her future plans for increasing every Native American's present standard of living, should she one day become the first female President.

She referred to her career as a New York Senator, how she had signed "YES" for every Indian issue that came to her desk for approval. Although the Senator was vague on the details of her plan, she seemed most enthusiastic about her future ideas for helping her "red sisters and brothers".

At the conclusion of her speech, the Tribes presented the Senator with a plaque inscribed with her new Indian name - Walking Eagle. The proud Senator then departed in her motorcade, waving to the crowds.

A news reporter later inquired to the group of chiefs of how they came to select the new name given to the Senator.

They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of **** it can no longer fly.
